Summer Time Legs

Exactly what you are thinking gals …. How do my legs look in the summer?? Sometimes we worry about are they looking good and is there any hair on my legs or did I forget to remove all the hair on them… These are the perils of showing your legs in the summer…. Another worry for me today!!

Well, it is said that you can use good’ol “peanut butter” to shave your legs with and that it will moisture your legs at the same time…… Now, after reading that I dashed out to the grocery store to buy a jar of peanut butter, so that I could shave my legs.

But before that I could enjoy a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that will give me the energy required to stake out on the adventure in my bathroom of shaving my legs with peanut butter. While making my sandwich it crossed my mind that peanut butter is a bit sticky and somewhat thicker than the other products available for removing hair on your legs….. But I knew that I was in for an action packed time after I finished eating my sandwich….. Bathroom here I come!!!

Of course I positioned everything next to the tub, so that no peanut butter would drip ( okay… peanut butter doesn’t drip) but plop onto the floor and then I step in it and that could be like stepping in doggy doddly in your back yard….. AND THAT I DON’TWANT!!!

I prepared my skin on my legs…. Summer legs are just a shave away…. I started to apply the peanut butter onto my leg… egit( I thought), but it promises great soft skin and good looking legs… I am always a gal that is looking for that sort of thing!!

Anyway, back to my peanut butter legs…. The bathroom smelt like one giant peanut butter cookie, but my legs didn’t look so good. But I knew once I shaved the peanut butter off my leg(s) I would be ready for summer… I even bought a new razor for my legs, because I didn’t want to use my old one from last season.

With my trusty razor in my hand I started or rather tried to remove the peanut butter from my leg… Though to tell you the truth it wasn’t that easy and the razor got clogged-up with the peanut butter after the first go, but I wasn’t going to give-up that easily !!!!

Determination is what is required… I carried on but after about 5 minutes things weren’t going the way they should be; easy to remove, smooth skin and removes the hair too( not at my place). I got a clogged razor, hair still on my legs and a bunch of peanut butter in my tub that I have to clean up too.

All these so called great ideas do not seem to be aimed at me, or it could be that I didn’t buy the right brand of peanut butter?? All I can say is that; don’t use chunky peanut butter because the chunks of peanuts may cause problems…. Maybe that is what I did wrong, because I always buy chunky peanut butter and not smooth.

Either way I don’t think I will be peanut buttering my legs again this summer, but instead buy a new jar and make myself my favorite peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Bathtub Blues

The wonderful room … the bathroom is the room in the house that we love so much but also take it for granted too.

I recently got looking at new bathtubs… I know you are thinking “ yah, and a bathtub”. It is unbelievable the styles you can choose from and the colors too. But bathtubs aren’t like they used to be years ago!

When I was a kid our bathtub must have been as deep as the ocean and so huge too. You could dive underwater and see your rubber duck floating on the surface about 20 feet above you, because the tub was so full of water that it was so deep. Or is it just a dream and I only thought that our bathtub was as large as an ocean????

But it is true, bathtubs back then were made of cast iron and made to last a lifetime and they were large and deep, and not shallow and made of fiberglass like the ones today.
The bathtubs I saw recently were small and water saving as I was told. But I want to take a bath and not just dip my big toe in a bit of water and call that “having a bath”.
I told the sales person what I wanted and they suggested I get a whirlpool or Jacuzzi. I said I didn’t want either!! I just want a good old “big” bathtub where I can fill it up with water and only let my head stick out like I did as a kid……. Am I asking for too much??????

Apparently… YES!!! My childhood memories are somehow slowly going down the drain with the thought that there may never be huge bathtubs again. This is a thought that could make me cry.

I recently saw an old cast iron bathtub and could have bought it too, but it wouldn’t fit into my bathroom, because the modern bathtubs are small and I have only limited space so, I had to forgo the thought of sitting in a huge bathtub at home like I did as a kid.

But as a substitute for that lovely old bathtub I took a picture of it and hung it in my bathroom to bring back those fond memories of what it was like to have a bath in a real bathtub without the water saving features….

Enjoy your bath no matter what size bathtub you have!
